So my dog and my summit were playing tag today as they always do. Next thing I know, there's a cloud of smoke flying across my yard. I run up to it thinking a lipo was getting ready to go and low and behold, the motor was smoking like crazy. I't the stock motor and the thing is seized up with noticeably melted internals. I've been running on two 5000mah 7.v lipos for months. And poof. I had just put on my MIP CVD's and gone from the two steering servos to one Hitec last night too!
So, I want to just bump up a little speed for the dog but keep the incredible crawling option open. Is the Dewalt worth it?
Traxxas won't cover this motor since I'm running lipos on the 775 will they?
